On April 12, 1986, Rosemary married another special man, Raymond Heim Jr. at St. Bernard Catholic Church, Green Bay. He preceded her in death on September 9, 2016. Rosemary gained four more children. The “Brady Bunch” began with Rusty (Katie) Heim, Ruth (Gene) DePrez, Roxy (Jeff) DuBois and Rob (Lynn) Heim; ten grandchildren, Angie (Phil) Koebe, Jake (Angela) Heim, Zach (Bobbie) Heim, Tina (Russ) Thiry, Elizabeth (Adrian) Guilette, David (Nia) DuBois, John (special friend Payton) DuBois, Wendy Heim, Cory (special friend Mallory) Heim, and Ryan Heim; eleven great grandchildren, Rey, Luna, Laila, Isael, Jaxon, Vanessa, Elias, Aiden, Bria, William, and Jax.

Rosemary graduated from Demark High School in 1958 and shortly after moved to Green Bay. Rosemary married in 1960 and started a family in 1962. Her world turned upside down on August 9, 1971, when she became a single mother of four due to the passing of her husband. Rosemary was a fighter and raised those kids to become exceptional adults. Rosemary was a breast cancer survivor of 26 years who counseled others as they too struggled with the disease. Though Rosemary had many setbacks she never quit, working at the Press-Gazette for 26 years, working at Riverside Ballroom on weekends, and always having enough time to love, support, and raise her kids. On April 12, 1986, Rosemary married her second soul mate and together they enjoyed the second half of their lives with an even bigger family. She loved bowling, Polka dancing, traveling, eating out and playing cards with friends.
